think that's when we realized it wasn't going to turn out for us. >> the reports that you and governor romney and your wives were shocked by the results that were coming in, true? >> it is true. the polling we had, the numbers we were looking at looked like we stood a pretty good chance of winning and so when the numbers came in going the other direction, we saw the kind of turnout that was occurring in urban areas, which are fairly unpret dented, it did come as a bit of a shock. >> speaking with a reporter of our cnn affiliate, wisn in milwaukee. >>> still ahead, why would marijuana smokers mug for the cameras? jeanne moos is looking into it, next.
